Texas Beaders Retreat(cont)

So, there were lots of classes, I took 3 classes myself, the first one was friday night and it was a bracelet made with wire and pearls, mine was peacock pearls and blue wire but this is the photo to advertise the class

The second class i had was saturday morning with Royelle Giddens, now you must know these facts Royelle can teach a retarded chimpanzee to bead and I just am NOT a morning person. So, needless to say i did not do well in that class. too tired , couldn't get it, not a stitcher, who knows but i did not get it. LOL the other students made some awesome stuff though!

The last class i took was on saturday night cuz i did not want to waste another class on the morning thing, LOL It was Metal mania with gwen youngblood and we got to hammer and cut and bang on metal, totally FUN!!! here is the promo pic for that class

There were other classes and great teachers but i could not attend them all!!! One of the things i did this year for the 3rd year is make up goodie bags for each of the attendees.
